Winter Wonderland at A Gem of a Challenge

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  So glad that it is finally the weekend.  The christmas tree will be making its appearance on Sunday so a bit of a tidy up is in order today.  Still got lots of my christmas shopping to do but me and hubby are going to Birmingham for the weekend next week.  We are travelling down on Friday after work and coming back on Sunday.  The plan is to do the christmas shopping during the day on Saturday and then visit the christmas market in the evening to sample the mulled wines etc.  It would be so rude not to as we are there lol.  In the meantime I will be working on my christmas cards again this weekend.  Why don't I start a bit earlier in the year?

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge.  Our theme for this week is 
Winter Wonderland

Our prize as always is

2 individual digi images
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS...

Here is my inspiration project for you.

I decided to go for a triple easel card using my Octagon template that I have had for about 3 years.  The super cute penguin images and the sentiment that I used can be found here.  I used the pre coloured images which do make for quick cards.  The backing paper and the stoppers for each part of the easel are from Papermania - again I have had these for about two years.  I kept the embellishments really simple using little bows, gems and buttons.  
I think that this card will be given to one of my nephews for christmas.
